Yet, most people think their relationship problems are just about their partner’s when at root it is the syndrome that is wreaking havoc day to day.
SRS in its most horrific form’s, can result in people committing acts of terrorism and acts of emotional, psychological, sexual and physical abuse in their relationships at home and work. If not consciously healed, overtime SRS will inevitably lead to divorce, separation, resignation and loss of jobs. People choose out of relationships all the time because they don’t know how to identify the syndrome and deal with it in healthy ways.
